    Not really extended I guess, but DH is away Monday to Friday every third week. So not too bad, but I do get bored when he is away.

    Hoping it won't be too hard when bubs arrives!

    My hubby is FIFO as is away for 4 weeks and home for one week. Just dropped him off today.

    I rarely get bored when he is away because I am so busy.. work, general house upkeep and all DD activities. I find Friday/Saturday nights the time I am most bored.

    Not anymore, but I can empathise. My DH was in the army until late last year and he was *always* away, for months at a time. I never saw him.

    What sort of work does he do?

    Not as bad as some, but my hubby has his own business so travels out to the mines frequently.....

    I like it!! I get the tv to myself, the bed to myself, get to eat whatever I want... It's a bit of a downer when he gets home sometimes lol!

    My hubby is fifo, only 2 weeks away at a time but this round has been a nightmare, dd fell and broke her wrist 2 days after he flew out, so i.ve been up and down all night with her and am utterly exhausted! Normally i dont find it too bad, but you really notice their absence in the hard times

    Not literally, but it sure feels like it!
    DF works shift work, so when he is working he is awake (at work) when I am asleep and he is asleep when I am awake. It really can feel like he is never home because of this.
